Cesarean section predominantly affects right ventricular diastolic function during the early transitional period.

Pediatr Neonatol 2019 Jan 19. Epub 2019 Jan 19.

Department of Pediatrics, Faculty of Medical Sciences, University of Fukui, Fukui, Japan. Electronic address:

Background: Although the mode of delivery is well known to affect pulmonary function, the effects of a cesarean delivery on postnatal changes in cardiac mechanics have not been clearly defined.

Methods: To evaluate whether delivery mode influences cardiac function in the early transitional period, 42 infants delivered by cesarean section (CS) and 110 by vaginal delivery (VD) were enrolled, and they underwent serial echocardiography at 0, 1, 2, and 5 days of age. Longitudinal changes in ejection fraction (EF), fractional area change (FAC), mitral annular plane systolic excursion (MAPSE), tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion (TAPSE), Tei index, ratio of peak early diastolic flow velocity (E) to peak early diastolic annular velocity (e') (E/e'), and deceleration time (DcT) were compared between the two groups.

DNA methylation of the Rtl1 promoter in the placentas with fetal growth restriction.

Pediatr Neonatol 2019 Jan 5. Epub 2019 Jan 5.

Department of Pediatrics, Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine, Kobe, Japan.

Background: Small for gestational age (SGA) babies experience fetal growth restriction because of placental insufficiency, and aberrant fetal growth has been linked to DNA methylation in the placenta. An imprinted gene encoding retrotransposon-like protein 1 (RTL1) is regulated by DNA methylation in the promoter region and plays a key role in placental development. We therefore investigated the DNA methylation status of RTL1 in the placenta of infants with severe SGA. Read More

Pediatr Neonatol 2018 Aug 24. Epub 2018 Aug 24.

Department of Rehabilitation Sciences, Faculty of Health and Social Sciences, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Background: Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) can leave negative impacts on one's health behaviors or social functioning later in life. Resilient characteristics have been shown to mitigate effects against risk behaviors in developing adolescents. However, clinical and research attention has rarely been given to jointly consider the effects of ACEs and resilient characteristics on health behaviors in Taiwanese youth. Read More

Specifying the diffusion MRI connectome in Chinese-speaking children with developmental dyslexia and auditory processing deficits.

Pediatr Neonatol 2018 Aug 10. Epub 2018 Aug 10.

Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Pittsburgh School Medicine, 3550 Terrace Street, Scaife A507, Pittsburgh, PA 15261, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Lexical tone identification has a unique role in the perceptual processes of Chinese readers. Reduced lexical tone awareness, along with poor word-decoding abilities, is frequently observed in Chinese-speaking children with developmental dyslexia. However, whether this deficit is linked to reduced auditory processing and interrupted structural connectivity in the brain requires further investigation. Read More

Effects of two different lipid emulsions on antioxidant status, lipid peroxidation and parenteral nutrition- related cholestasis in premature babies, a randomized-controlled study.

Pediatr Neonatol 2018 Aug 2. Epub 2018 Aug 2.

Cukurova University, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Paediatrics, Division of Neonatology, Turkey.

Background: Olive oil-soybean oil (OO/SO) based lipid emulsions (LE) lack ω-3 PUFAs eicosapentaenoic acid -EPA and docosahexaenoic acid- DHA, which have clinical benefits on inflammatory processes. Fish oil based LEs are good sources of DHA and EPA. Fish oil, MCT, Olive oil and Soya oil (FMOS) lipid is one of the fish oil containing LEs supplemented with high levels of α-tocopherol and lower levels of phytosterol compared to OO/SO lipid emulsions.

Department of Pediatrics, National Cheng Kung University Hospital and College of Medicine, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan; Department of Pediatrics, E-Da Hospital, Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Electronic address:

Background: Hour-specific bilirubin nomogram has been recommended to predict postdischarge hyperbilirubinemia in newborns. However, it may not be applicable in Taiwan due to ethnic differences. The aim of this study was to construct a 12-h specific transcutaneous bilirubin (TCB) nomogram in newborns for clinical reference. Read More

SCID/NOD mice model for 5-FU induced intestinal mucositis: Safety and effects of probiotics as therapy.

Pediatr Neonatol 2018 Jul 26. Epub 2018 Jul 26.

Division of Gastroenterology and Nutrition, Department of Pediatrics, MacKay Children's Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan; Department of Medicine, MacKay Medical College, New Taipei City, Taiwan; Department of Pediatrics, Taipei Medical University, Taipei, Taiwan. Electronic address:

Background: For chemotherapy patients, intestinal mucositis is a frequent complication. Previously, we evaluated the beneficial effect of oral probiotics in 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) induced mucositis in BALB/c mice. Here, we used SCID/NOD mice instead to simulate the immunodeficiency of chemotherapy patients: first, to evaluate the safety of probiotic supplementation and second, to determine the probiotic effect in response to 5-FU intestinal mucositis.

Feeding interval and use of donor breast milk for very low birthweight infants: A nationwide survey in Japan.

Pediatr Neonatol 2018 Jul 21. Epub 2018 Jul 21.

Department of Pediatrics, Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine, Kobe, Japan; Department of Pediatrics, Nihon University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: Enteral feeding is critical for postnatal growth of very low birthweight infants (VLBWI); however, a standard feeding strategy has not been established in Japan. A 2- or 3-h feeding interval is generally used, but no clear evidence supports either approach. Additionally, there is no nationwide breast milk bank in Japan and no consensus exists on the use of donor breast milk (DBM). Read More
